Office of Racial and Ethnic Relations

Our Mission

The Office of Racial and Ethnic Relations was formed to help racially, ethnically, and internationally diverse students, employees, and alumni know they are valued members of the Lee University community.

We base our mission on the Scriptural principles that:

  • Each human being is created in God’s image.
  • The kingdom of God includes and values people from diverse backgrounds.
  • God calls for the just treatment of all people.

This office seeks to intentionally prepare all students for responsible Christian living in a complex world while advocating for, empowering, and supporting those from racially, ethnically, and internationally diverse backgrounds.

Prayer Concerns

Lee University is praying for everyone involved in the two deadly shootings in New York and California in the past days and calls for an honest dialogue in addressing the “persistent evil of racism” within the country

Lee University is praying for everyone who is suffering as the crisis in Ukraine deteriorates. We are praying for those who are anxious and fearful, and for those who are bereaved, injured or who have lost their lives or a loved one.
